The Saga behind this temple:

Rishi’s were in distress because of the wayward behavior of the demons and so they appealed to Lord Siva. Lord Siva underwent a deep penance and produced six sparks from his forehead, ergo Lord Muruga was created. Then Muruga fought with that demon and defeated him and converted him as his vehicle peacock. This is the place where Muruga was rewarded by all devas and got married to Deivanai.
